More About the Author

I was born in south Georgia(USA), graduated from high school in Atlanta, married my husband, James, in Habersham County, and graduated from Piedmont College(Demorest, GA) summa cum laude in history with minors in anthropology and Spanish in 1995.

I worked for over 16 years as a newspaper reporter on both weekly and daily papers. In between reporting jobs, I had a son, Blayne, my greatest creative achievement. I love iguanas and most other animals, and am the biggest geek on earth. If it's electronic, and non-lethal, I probably have one. I was always the kid who was out of step with the rest of the world, and I still am. My father was a college professor, so my sister and I grew up not quite understanding what prejudice was.

I traveled a lot when I was more mobile than I am now, and I never met a person I didn't like. Writing books is more than a job to me, it's my life, next to being a wife, mother and grandmother. I am a person of faith, but I respect all religions and all cultures.

I write romantic suspense for HQN books, mass market and series contemporary romance for Harlequin, and science fiction novels for Luna Books. In my spare time, I sleep. :)

I have to disagree with most of the reviews written below. I believe this book was great. I'm also a big Diana Palmer fan and ive read my share of her stories. I think this one was sweet and both characters were strong, unlike other stories where the woman is incredibly fragile and weak.

Meredith lives a life who could break anyone if they werent strong enough, yet she is able to hold herself up without help. She even hides her real education as a nurse and accepts to live out in a tiny city. This time, the reader wasnt always being reminded of how innocent she was, how fragile, etc. This time she actually had a strong personality.

Rey is just like the other men in Palmer's stories...hes stubborn, "sexy", has his mind set on thinking the female is a "tramp", and does not want to get married. There wasnt really a change in the male character, so no big thing there. But, a good character overall.

Overall i think this story is great for so many reasons. If you want a different story, with strong characters, this one is the one.

I think the only thing that i agree on with the previous reviews is that you dont do CPR on someone who is alive....but you kind of overlook that since its not a medical text. However, correct information would have been nice.

Let me start the review out by saying I am a huge Diana Palmer fan. I started out reading her romances and was hooked. I have to say though that lately her books are becoming stale, this one included. This book is part of a line of books, of which the first of the Hart's stories was EXCELLENT. Diana's characters are becoming cliches, all the women are the same, the men as well. Her personal beliefs are coming through too much as well, such as her political feelings. This book is more of the same. Her loyal fans will love it, but it will leave many readers looking for more.

I have to agree with the other reviewers. I did like the first few pages with their introduction of D.P.'s typical characters, like the hero who misjudges and hurts the already wounded heroine, and then has to do some serious grovelling before the happy ending. It sort of was there, and it wasn't. I had the impression Ms. Palmer got bored herself after the first chapters and just hurriedly threw together a few clichés - minor misunderstandings, dream wedding, passionate wedding night, all in too much of a rush - in order to finish off the book. The main characters appeared rather more shallow towards the end, not fulfilling the promise shown in the beginning.
This is now about the third or fourth new Palmer novel I have read which left me rather unsatisfied. Couldn't publishers be persuaded to give us some of her older (and better) ones instead?

I am an avid Diana Palmer fan. I have to say, I was alittle disappointed with this book. The romance in the story was pretty good, but toward the last part of the book I started getting bored. I hate to say that about a Diana Palmer book but this is not one of her best. I did like Reys character and Meredith was sweet but for some reason I just couldn't get to interested.
Not a bad book. I would wait and check it out in the library before I would spend money on it.

I have read Diana Palmer from the beginning and eagerly await each book that she publishes. This last one as well as the last few have truly paled in comparison to her older works. This books seems like it was written by an amateur and I really had to ask myslef as I pushed myself to finish the book (after throwing it down many times) if someone else was writing. I know of many famous authors who get famous and the quality of their writing declines in order to crank out books for deadlines but this book had none of Palmer's old style. The male of the book, Rey is truly un-likeable and his arrogrant attitude towards the woman is terrible. The reasoning for his being sour on women seems flimsy and I basically did not like him. I know Palmer's men are always very hard and can seem cold but they always deeply love the woman in the book but I did not see that at all in this book. Rey did not seem to love her and was dead against being with her therefore the ending of them getting together did not seem natural or love-inspired. All in all, I will not buy another Palmer book from now on. I was sad to lost yet another old time favorite author.

I really enjoyed this book. I will not say I think it is DP best book but I would recommend it to anyone who likes her writing and this series. I know some of the other reviews gave it bad marks because of "medical things" "not being realistic" If I want realistic I read the newspaper that's real. This I enjoyed ....
